Varian Medical Systems' Security and Inspection Products Group Receives Largest Single Order for IntellX Systems
Date:1/27/2011

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) today announced it has received a $21 million order from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for multiple IntellX® cargo container screening systems. The order, booked this month, represents the company's largest single order for Varian's IntellX gantry systems. The IntellX systems will be sited along the US border, scanning vehicles for both border security and manifest verification purposes.

"High energy X-ray linear accelerators have proven to be effective tools for rapid, high-resolution container screening and the IntellX system combines imaging speed and image quality, providing faster imaging as well as making the images easier to analyze," says Bob Drubka, head of Varian's Security and Inspection Products business unit. "Varian is very proud to have been selected for this important procurement and we look forward to working with CBP on the successful implementation."

The IntellX system combines a Linatron® Mi6 dual energy linear accelerator, which allows enhanced material discrimination and has the potential for automatic identification of contraband materials, with a proprietary detection system designed for scanning high-density cargo.

"We developed the new Mi Linatron series as a smaller and more cost-competitive system for automatic detection of suspicious materials hidden in cargo," adds Bob Drubka. "Governments around the globe continue to step up security in ports and at border crossings and this latest order demonstrates the US government's commitment to improve security at its borders."
